even though i was naughty, santa really paid attention this year. he knew my favorite store and exactly what i was drooling over. so without further ado, here’s what i got:
i have to thank Chloe at Running with a bottle of wine for her post with all kinds of very cool christmas gift ideas. i had no idea this must have apparel even existed but as soon as i saw it, i knew i had to have it and how convenient that the only store that has it, The Ironman 360 Store is a hop, skip, and a jump away from my casa … lucky me!
the next item was also bought at The Ironman 360 Store.
and let’s not forget the early christmas present that i got right before thanksgiving:
not the bike, but the Spinergy PBO’s with the carbon spokes. i love them so far. i have had a few requests to write up a review of these wheels and i certainly will as soon as i have had a chance to race them at least once or twice … so around march/april be on the lookout for a review. even if they don’t make me faster, i won’t be heartbroken, or bankrupt, plus, they look more badass than the crap wheels that came on it.
thank you santa! i hope you love the stuff you got as much as i love mine.
i am so ready for this year to be over. not that it was a bad year because it was a GREAT year, maybe the best year of my life and i will review the year in tomorrow’s post, but i am so ready to get focused again and have a routine. all of this free time since the ironman distance race in october is making me CRAZY as hell. i can’t stand myself anymore … uugh!
oh yeah, i almost forgot, santa also brought me a bad cold. i woke on christmas morning with a sore throat and then the rest ran its course. still have a cough but nothing to stop me from training, no way! the worst part, between blowing my nose a thousand times (and i was using Kleenex aloe tissues too) and the wind/cold outside has left my poor face so chapped. it HURTS, so i’ve been lathering on the aquaphor. i’m so shiny!
i hope all of my blog friends had a lovely christmas too. much love and peace out!
